This paper provides quantitative evidence on the impact of the Training and Visit (T & V) extension system in theirrigated Punjab of Pakistan. Three models are analyzed using limited dependent variable regressions: the impact ofT & V on the number of extension contacts with farmers; the effect of extension contact on farmers' knowledge ofwheat technology; and the impact ofT & V on the adoption of improved wheat technology. The first model analyzesthe impact of T & V on the quantity of extension contact and the latter two models analyze the effect on the quantity.and quality of extension contact. It is concluded that T & V has increased the quantity but not the quality ofextension contact and this, in turn, has increased farmers' knowledge and adoption of technology. However, theoverall impacts have been small relative to those observed in a similar area in India.
